Say Goodbye to Chipped Teeth

We know that even the tiniest chip can have a dramatic impact on the look of your smile and we have amazing treatments at the ready to restore your smile to its full glory. With cosmetic bonding, we are able to repair chipped teeth and create stunning smiles in just one hour!

What is cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is also known as composite bonding, and it is an effective procedure that involves using dental composite to fix damaged teeth and improve the overall aesthetic of the smile. Composite is a tooth-coloured putty-like material, which can be set using a powerful light source. It is also used for white fillings. Bonding is most commonly used to rebuild chipped teeth, but it can also be an effective solution for patients with worn teeth and spaces between their teeth.

The procedure

The best thing about this treatment is that it guarantees amazing results without any pain. The procedure is quick and simple and the results are visible straight away. Your Clifton dentist will use their creative flair and expertise to mould the composite to repair your chipped tooth. The shade of the composite will be closely matched to your natural tooth so that you won’t be able to spot the difference between the composite and the tooth. Once your dentist has shaped and bonded the composite onto the tooth, it will be set. This involves shining a curing light onto the tooth. This process is quick and painless, and all you need to do is pop on a pair of goggles to protect your eyes from the light. Once the composite is hard and any final adjustments have been made, you can take a look at your new smile! Often, even the simplest and most minor changes to the individual teeth can make an amazing difference to the overall look of the smile and you can get ready to smile with confidence again.

Cheer Up Your Choppers This Christmas with Cosmetic Bonding

Nothing will make you look forward to Christmas more than the prospect of a beautiful smile, so why not book an appointment to get those little imperfections sorted in perfect time for the festive season? With cosmetic bonding, we can transform your smile in just one hour!

What is cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a procedure designed to correct minor aesthetic issues with the teeth, such as chips and worn edges, misshapen teeth and small gaps between the teeth. Bonding only takes an hour and it can really make a difference to the look of your smile. Bonding treatment involves using a versatile dental material known as dental composite to carry out minor repairs to the teeth and create a more attractive overall aesthetic. Dental composite is tooth-coloured and comes in lots if different shades. Your dentist will select the closest match to your natural tooth shade for a seamless finish. Bonding involves shaping and placing dental composite to build up worn edges, improve the shape of the teeth and repair chips. Your dentist will carefully position the composite and then mould it to create the desired effect. At room temperature, composite is soft and malleable and once it is in the right place, your dentist will then shine a curing light onto your teeth to set the composite. Although dental composite is not as strong as tooth enamel, it is durable and hard-wearing.

Is cosmetic bonding for me?

If you have a few issues here and there and are eager to smarten up your smile without spending a lot of money or time in the dental chair, cosmetic bonding could be the ideal solution for you. Even though the changes seem fairly minor, the overall transformation is incredibly impressive, especially as treatment takes just one hour.

How Composite Bonding Can Help Chipped or Cracked Teeth

A person’s teeth can end up chipped or cracked for many different reasons varying from involuntary teeth-grinding (bruxism), accidental injuries, and even a severe build up of tooth decay. In the event that a tooth does become chipped or cracked it is possible to look into composite bonding to help correct the damage.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding is the procedure in which a dentist repairs a fractured, chipped, cracked or discoloured tooth, using special tooth-coloured resins so as to blend perfectly with the rest of the patient’s teeth.

How is composite bonding treatment carried out?

Composite bonding is a simple procedure and unless the chip or crack in the tooth has been caused by tooth decay, anaesthesia won’t even be necessary.  Firstly, and to ensure that the tooth-coloured composite blends in perfectly with the chipped tooth, the dentist uses a shade guide, finding the best possible match. When this matching colour has been chosen the next step is for the dentist to prepare the tooth for bonding by making the surface of the tooth in question rough and abrasive. A conditioning liquid is then applied onto the tooth to ensure that the composite bonding material will stick. Next comes the most important part, applying the bonding material. This resin is treated much like clay, being moulded and smoothed until it has formed the perfect shape. Once this has been perfected the resin is then hardened into position using either ultraviolet lights or lasers. Once hardened, the bonding material is further shaped, trimmed and finally polished so that it matches the colour of the rest of the teeth.We carry out such treatment at Clifton Dental Studio in Bristol so do contact us if you would like more advice or information.

Repair Chipped Teeth with Composite Bonding

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding, also known as cosmetic bonding, is a commonly used dental procedure and an excellent option for patients with chipped or worn teeth. In this procedure, the dentist uses their experience and skill to shape soft dental composite to repair chips and increase the bulk of tooth structure on worn surfaces to enhance the aesthetic of the smile. During the first stage of treatment, the composite is soft and this enables your dentist to mould it. Once the composite is in the right place, your dentist will then use a curing light to harden it and the tooth will be stronger, as well as looking more aesthetically pleasing. Bonding generally takes less than an hour, there is no pain and therefore no injections and the results are amazing. Even the smallest chip in the tooth can make you feel self-conscious about the look of your smile and chips can also increase the risk of further damage to the tooth. With bonding, the tooth becomes stronger and your smile looks gorgeous and healthy. Bonding can also be used to reduce the size of a gap between two teeth.

Is cosmetic bonding the best option?

There are other options available for chipped and worn teeth, such as veneers and other restorative treatments. However, in cases where the damage is minor and patients are looking for a quick solution, this treatment is often the best choice. If you have chipped or worn teeth, call our friendly reception team today and we can arrange a consultation to go through the different treatment options with you.

Porcelain Veneers vs. Cosmetic Bonding

If your smile has minor cosmetic flaws that affect your confidence, there are various dental procedures out there that can help. Two of our most effective and popular cosmetic treatments include porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding, but which is best and what are the pros and cons?

About porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers have an outstanding reputation for creating dazzling, beautiful smiles and are a popular choice with celebrities. Porcelain veneers are tooth-shaped shells made from high grade porcelain. They are placed onto the teeth to produce a brand new look and should last for several years. Porcelain is used because it looks similar to natural, radiant teeth. It is also durable and has a lovely iridescent finish that really makes your smile sparkle. Veneers are an effective solution for gaps between the teeth, worn or uneven teeth and staining.

Cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a single session procedure that takes just one hour to repair and reshape the teeth, creating a more attractive, healthier looking smile. This procedure involves using dental composite to improve the shape of individual teeth and enhance the overall look of the smile. Your dentist will shape the composite to adjust the aesthetic of the individual teeth, smoothing out rough and uneven edges, building up surfaces, filling in chips and closing gaps between the teeth. Once the composite is in the right place, it is set using a curing light. Treatment only takes around an hour, you’ll be able to enjoy the results straight away and the structure of your teeth will remain intact.

The Brilliance Behind Cosmetic Bonding

If you’re looking for a brilliant cosmetic dental treatment, allow us to introduce you to cosmetic bonding. This amazing treatment transforms the appearance of the smile in just one session and could be just what you’ve been looking for if you have minor aesthetic issues, such as chipped teeth.

About cosmetic bonding

Cosmetic bonding is an aesthetic procedure designed to reshape and repair the teeth using a material called dental composite. Composite has a putty like consistency at room temperature and it comes in an array of shades designed to match natural tooth shades. Your dentist will use their skill to place the composite onto the individual teeth and shape it to address problems such as uneven and worn surfaces, jagged edges, chips and gaps between the teeth. Once the composite is in the right place and your dentist is happy with the new aesthetic, they will shine a curing light onto the material and this sets it. Once the composite has set, you won’t be able to tell the difference between the natural tooth structure and the composite.

Who can benefit from cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a simple and quick cosmetic treatment that offers an ideal solution for those who have mild imperfections affecting the shape or look of the teeth. Minor changes are made to the individual teeth, but the overall impact is incredible and after just an hour, you’ll be surprised at the difference. Bonding is a more affordable and faster alternative to veneers and it can also offer another option to braces for those who have small gaps between their teeth. If you like the sound of cosmetic bonding and you’d like to find out more, call us today!

What is dental bonding?

Bonding, also known as composite or cosmetic bonding, is a procedure that we use commonly to make running repairs and aesthetic improvements to individual teeth. Often, the changes to the teeth seem very minor, but the overall impact of treatment on the aesthetic of the smile is amazing. After just one hour in the chair, your smile will look totally different. With bonding, your dentist uses their skill and experience to shape dental composite to add volume to worn edges, improve the look of misshapen teeth and repair chipped teeth. We can also use composite to decrease the size of a gap between two teeth. Composite looks and feels like putty and it comes in a range of shades, so we can match the shade to the colour of your tooth. When your dentist is happy with the placement and position of the composite, they will shine a curing light onto the material and this will make it firm.

There are many advantages of dental bonding, including:
  • speed: this procedure only takes one hour

Swindon gets Invisible Fillings For a Natural smile

3200188_blogAmazing advances in dental materials mean that you can now have fillings, which are completely invisible when you smile. At Clifton Dental of Bristol our tooth-coloured fillings are invisible to everyone apart from your dentist and they are much more durable than they used to be. Now, white filings are suitable for almost all patients and they should last for around seven years. Fillings are commonly used to fill cavities, which are small holes in the tooth surface caused by decay. They help to strengthen the tooth and prevent bacteria from spreading through the tooth and they are often a means of preventing the need for more intensive treatment further down the line. If decay is left untreated, this can result in more serious and even irreversible damage to the tooth and root canal treatment or a new crown may be required. With tooth coloured fillings, you can enjoy good oral health without affecting the aesthetic of your teeth. We are happy to fit new fillings or replacement fillings for mercury amalgam fillings, which are much more visible than white fillings. The filling procedure is quick and simple and there is nothing for you to worry about; your tooth will be numbed before treatment to ensure you don’t suffer any pain and the cavity will be cleaned thoroughly and any decayed tissue removed before the filling is placed. Composite is placed inside the filling when still in putty form and then set firm using a curing light.  

Bristol chooses Cosmetic Bonding for a fast fix

2445507_blogIt is always lovely to retain a beautiful smile, especially as you get older and your teeth are starting to suffer from ravishes that life and age are throwing at them. If you find yourself in this predicament, it isn’t hard to rectify, especially if you choose to go for cosmetic bonding; this is probably the best treatment for cost, effectiveness and versatility you could go for. It involves rebuilding the damage areas and hiding them away with layers of white coloured resin (matched to the colour of your teeth), and once everything is tucked away, the teeth can be sculptured and polished until they fit in precisely with the rest of your mouth. The results will look great and it will only take an hour to achieve this. The only flaw with using resin is that it isn’t as durable as say porcelain veneers and comes with a shelf-life of around 5 years- it is also susceptible to staining. However, this can be simply remedied again by popping back for a top-up when things go wrong. Ask Clifton Dental about bonding and get this wonder treatment done in Bristol.

The teeth of Swindon get a makeover with CEREC

592142_blogIt is a great source of comfort to know that if you need to have things fitted or repaired in a jiffy in your mouth, the treatments are there for you. Crowns, veneers and bridges are some of those cosmetic beauties that help to restore the look and ambience in your mouth, and on general, they will only take a few weeks to fit them in, after your teeth have been prepared, moulds taken and the parts made-up. However, CEREC offers all of this in just over the hour, with the moulds being replaced by digital imaging, and this is what this treatment is all about, the brilliant use of modern technology.
